About Author T.S. GrahamT.S. Graham was born and raised in midcoast Maine. He has worked as a sea urchin diver, fish monger, home renovator, and in several group homes for children and adults with disabilities. His original screenplay, Stone’s Point, written as Clint Elliott, has won multiple awards. He studied English Literature at the University of Southern Maine, where, despite developing a strong dislike of the traditional curriculum focused on old, dead (and boring) scribes, he somehow managed to graduate with honors. His greatest influences are writers like Stephen King and Michael Crichton, whose talents would have allowed them to write more literary fare, but they chose to thrill and entertain instead. He now lives on a horse farm with his beautiful wife and five daughters, two poodles, two cats, two happy turtles, four playful ferrets, three fish, a corn snake named “Tiger,” dozens of chickens, and, of course, four awesome equines. The Chronicles of Trellah, Book One: The Perpetual Rain is his debut novel.
This was an overall well written book. Its a YA book that I would put at about the age level of 12 just due to some of the parts of the book. This book has a great ending but also leaves you on a cliffhanger of questions so I will be very interested in reading the second installment of this book. Unique characters and I actually felt as if I was there with the characters going through what they were experiencing. I give this book a 4 only because the beginning of the book seemed to drag to the point that i would put it down and not return to it for a few days and the whole storm surrounding the town seemed to get old with no real explanation for it. However once the action started in the book it turned fast pace and I could not put it down. I normally dont read science fiction books like this but I am glad that I grabbed this book to review. It was very intriguing and not like any other book that I have read before.
